Faux Clipboard

It's been a while but I have a few projects. I'll start with this 'Faux Clipboard'. I got the idea from one of the booths at Scrapbook Expo in Duluth, GA, in July. Here's a tutorial on my take of it.

Binder Clip
Post-it Notes
12" x 6" Chipboard
12" x 12" DSP or Scrapbook Paper
Clothes Pin
Strong Adhesive (Red-Liner Tape)
Glue Stick, snail or some other adhesive
Coordinating Ribbons

Cut chipboard to 12" x 6"
Adhere DSP or Scrapbook Paper to front of chipboard
Using Red-liner Tape, Adhere Post-it Note to front
Cut a piece of DSP small enough to cover front of Clothespin and cover
Add Sticky Strip to back of clothespin and attach to Clipboard
Decorate Front of Clipboard
Tie Ribbons to Binder Clip and Clip on top of Clipboard
Hang your Clipboard using the back wires of Binder Clip as the hanger

Note: Use Repositional Adhesive to attach embellishments & change as desired.
Suggestions for use: Small Calendars, Grocery List, To-Do List, Emergency Phone Numbers, Birthdays & Anniversaries, Reminders.
